Now We're Cookin'

The Rangers are 53-84.  They have 25 games left and need to go 10-15 to avoid the dreaded 100 loss season.  I know there is only a one game difference between 99 losses and 100 losses, but that's BIG game. No one wants to look back on their career or their favorite teams history and see triple digits in the loss column.

Hopefully the Rangers will get at least 10 more wins and spoil some other teams' seasons in the process.

The good news is that the one and only Dutch Oven, Derek Holland, will be making his first start of the season tonight.  I know, I know, it's very late in the season, but better late than never.  Unlike Yu Darvish wrapping it up for the year (which I am completely on board with), Derek has something to prove to himself.

He must be like a racehorse in the starting gate, barely containing the energy and excitement of finally getting back on the hill.  No matter how the game goes tonight, it will be a win for the Rangers just knowing that Derek Holland is back.

I wish Derek all the best in his 2014 Debut.  Seeing as how his appearance will set a new Major League record of 60 players used in a season, I think a nice 1/1 Derek Holland card will be a nice way to show my favorite Rangers player.  


  1. Look on the bright side, you're Rangers might get the first overall pick in the draft next year if you reach triple digits in losses.

  2. 60 is the record? Man, the Cubs were in the fifties the last couple of years.

    Keep you head up. A healthy Holland and Yu will help your place in the standings a bunch next year.

  3. Gorgeous patch, great blog! Hate to see that Wash resigned. I believe he managed the team well and isn't to blame for the "Disappointment of 2014."
